  1. This is nice. I really like the natural feel of the lighting. Wouldn’t mind seeing a bit more detail/clarity in the upper half of the frame though. And I wonder about moving the camera a step to the right with a slight pan left? Because I’m kind of dying to see more of the main staircase…more of the steps as they curve up towards the 2nd floor. With the current camera placement, the front-and-center railing/balusters are blocking easy access to the rest of the scene. Moving the camera to the right pushes the foreground railing off to the side, obscures much of that dark (and to me, uninteresting) area down the stairs to the left, and allows the main staircase to occupy the right ~2/3 of the shot, making it the undisputed star of the shot.

  2. I agree with Julie’s comments. I would also have cropped a bit off the top. There is great leading line guiding the eye up into the image and then it changes direction and leads the eye out of the frame. Also, I’m seeing what appears to be a sensor dust spot upper center of the frame.

  3. I love the simplicity and curve of the staircase in this shot. The lighting is beautiful but I might have blended in a little more light in the bottom part of the stairs.

  4. So much to like here! I think Julie makes some valid points (per usual). But the more I look at it, the more I like this angle. Those windows are so cool, and they are different from each other. This angle allows the viewer to see both (all 3 actually) windows. I would have pulled up that carpet at the bottom of the stairs. At first, I thought it was a dark chasm. The detail of the tile is well-captured, the lines are sexy and the light is gorgeous. Great job!
